Muscle Relaxants (Antiwrinkles)

Otherwise known as “anti-wrinkle injections”, this treatment rejuvenates by softening facial lines caused by repetitive contractions of our facial muscles. Commonly treated areas include the forehead lines, frown lines, eye wrinkles, lip wrinkles and gummy smile. When skilfully injected, muscle relaxants/antiwrinkles can also enhance your facial profile by lifting the brows and slimming the jawline for instance. Medical conditions such as bruxism (jaw clenching) and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can also be effectively managed with muscle relaxants.

* Individual results may vary.
